Senate Intelligence Chair: Deal Made to 'Fix' Surveillance Law

CAPITOL HILL --  The chairman of the Senate Intelligence panel says he's worked out "a fix" for the U-S law governing the National Security Agency's warrantless surveillance program.

Kansas Republican Pat Roberts says he's been working with the White House and has a "clear indication" of "movement" that could also sideline talk of a congressional investigation.

Without offering specifics, Roberts says the White House also would provide more information about the N-S-A eavesdropping to Congress.

Intelligence Committee members had planned to meet today to discuss whether to open an investigation. Roberts says he is not sure whether a congressional inquiry is "the right thing to do at this particular time."
